Vistry Partnerships is gearing up to deliver a range of exciting projects across the East Midlands in 2021. Over the next twelve months, the team is set to play a central role in transforming the region’s housing supply with the delivery of hundreds of new homes, apartments, and extra care facilities.

One flagship project under way this year is Spon Lane, where Linden Homes are selling 60 contemporary family homes and have already welcomed in its first customers. We are also working in partnership with Midland Heart to deliver a further 60 affordable homes. The multi-million-pound scheme is the housing association’s biggest ever development in North Warwickshire.

Elsewhere, our partnership with Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing continues to deliver exciting opportunities, with the Upton project in Northampton expecting its first handovers in early 2021. Wilford Fields, a further project for Metropolitan, substantially completed in 2020 and has already received an overwhelming response from residents with all of Linden Homes’ 122 properties now sold.

To the south-east, in Bedfordshire, Vistry Partnerships is fast approaching the halfway milestone at All Saints View. The independent living scheme for elderly residents is being built in partnership with Central Bedfordshire Council and Phase 1 is expected to complete this summer. The development will comprise of 168 one and two-bedroom apartments for rent, shared ownership, and outright purchase.

Despite the progress, the team in the East Midlands is not standing still. Furthermore, the team is currently finalising several significant contracts for a range of new projects across the region, and further details on these schemes will be revealed over the first quarter of the year.
